      DNF. I was looking for an exciting book set in Raj India that was full of atmosphere and history. While this book had an interesting setting - it was definitely focused more on the romance. The romantic attraction also began for the main guy with a married woman - a woman's who's husband is running around with servant girls. Didn't look like a lot of 'true love' shaping up here - mostly just a lot of scenes of characters - married and unmarried - engaged in sensual scenes. Plus, this was written [...]

      SUMMARY: She was invisible to those who should have loved her. After the Great War, Abby Fraser returns to India with her small son, where her husband is stationed with the British army. She has longed to go home to the land of glittering palaces and veiled women . . . but Nick has become a cruel stranger. It will take more than her American pluck to survive. Major Geoff Richards, broken over the loss of so many of his men in the trenches of France, returns to his cavalry post in Amritsar. But h [...]

      I loved this book! I started reading and had to force myself to put it down to get work done. I picked it back up as soon as I could to find out how my beloved characters were handling things! Yes I fell in love with the characters rather quickly as they were written with likeable personalities and had great conversations.I gave this book 5/5 stars. The story takes place in India and the setting is described with great detail. This is a historical novel and the history parts of the story are wri [...]

      I loved Shadowed in Silk for a few reasons. One was based in India!!! I always love picking up a new book and finding myelf thrust into a brand new setting. A lot of the books I read are historical fiction based in the US or England. Reading this book was so refreshing and it was greatly detailed where the different culture was concerned. Two, I loved Abby and Geoff's journey, though it was hard for me to get through some of the beginning (mostly because of Nick, Abby's husband). It was a beauti [...]

      Christine Lindsay has crafted a wonderful epic romance with tons of action that kept me turning pages. I don't usually read romance, but this was that in the classic sense of the word, and it grabbed hold of me and kept me turning pages. What an exotic period. The novel delves into ethnic and religious prejudices, political intrigue, love/hate, gun running, and a Russian spy thrown into the mix.

      Title: Shadowed in SilkAuthor: Christine LindsayPages: 276Year: 2011Publisher: WhiteFire PublishingMy rating is 5+ stars.There are many writers who share with readers tales of wonder, awe, heartache and hope. Some authors even include a deep thread of God, faith, hope and a host of other believing themes throughout a fictional tale. Here we are confronted with a very unique work that speaks of historical events and people along with imaginary ones with a bold theme of redemption from the first t [...]

      Played out against the backdrop of Ghandi's India, this novel has all the exotic elegance you would expect. The setting itself comes to life, as the author weaves a beautiful tale of romance, heartache, and intrigue.This book spares none of the gritty details as Abby Fraser deals with an abusive and neglectful husband. Geoff Richards must watch at a distance, doing what little he can to protect Abby and her son Cam, while Geoff and Abby both struggle with feelings that can not be fulfilled. In t [...]

      I really enjoyed 'Shadowed in Silk'! I didn't know what to expect, since this is the first book I've read by Christine Lindsay, but I'm happy to say that it was great!'Shadowed in Silk' opened my eyes to Hinduism and their customs. I found Abby's story very sad - her father, aunt, and even her husband never seemed to love her or even care about her.There are some twists in 'Shadowed in Silk' that I did not expect; however, I did guess some of the things that occurred!I also very much enjoyed the [...]

      I was delighted to get an advanced copy of Shadowed in Silk. I was intrigued by the setting of India, and the time period of the early 19th century. Having spent time in England, I enjoyed the realistic portrayal of the very proper British subjects, and I was moved by the accurate descriptions of the poverty and servitude suffered by the Indian people under British rule. Shadowed in Silk is one of those delicious books that will grip you from the first page and not let go, even when you turn the [...]

    11. Mike on said:

      Christine Lindsay's Christian romance shows a great deal of skill in the Indian setting: place, people and detail are well-woven into the story, and come across as authentic. Lindsay doesn't throw her research at us, but incorporates it smoothly into the story. The romance is well-enough done, and the will-she/won't-she element maintained till the last pages. However, the characters seem just a little underwritten to me. The men don't have quite enough grit, though the hero has integrity aplenty [...]

      This book took me by surprise. I didn't read the blurb, preferring instead to go into the book "blind." It was a bit of a difficult book for me to get into - rather confusing. In fact, there were several times that I nearly went and read the blurb just so I could try and make sense of what was going on. After I got into the book though? I was totally caught up in the time period and setting. Books that include wars are horrifying, but so enlightening to me. I want to shove them in people's faces [...]

      I was thrilled to get a review copy of Shadowed in Silk, Christine Lindsay’s compelling new epic novel. It reminded me of a few big screen movies like Australia, Jodie Foster in The King and I and Out of Africa. Christine has written a powerful and engaging novel that transported me to the streets of India; and mingling in it's diverse rich culture. I felt as if I had stepped off the ship with Abby and Geoff Richards and onto the dock, of Hotic India. Christine’s words paint vivid pictures t [...]

      You know what I love? I love that her author photo matches the book cover. That just makes me smile. That is a color that both my mother and I enjoy as well. Maybe I should go put mine on to write this review… I’ve been having a hard time reading this book as fast as I want to as my daughters are demanding attention elsewhere, but I am constantly drawn back as I want to experience what is to happen next. Right now my only qualm is that I wish I had gotten the ebook instead of the hardcopy, b [...]

      First posted on my blog, Legacy of a Writer.I don’t think I’ve ever read a book set in this specific time period—the British Raj. Before reading Shadowed in Silk, I knew nothing about this. That all changed once I finished this book. Christine Lindsay has written a wonderful debut—the first in a series, too, looks like! I look forward to reading and hearing more about this talented author in the future.Cam was such a dear. Through and through. I loved seeing the affections between mother [...]

      I occasionally get emails from authors asking me to review their books. More often than not, it isn't something I am interested in. Those were my initial thoughts when this author contacted me. They look like "chick books", and I had never heard of the author. She sent me a link to read the first chapter of the third book and assured me that men like her books too, so I agreed to review the book. To my surprise, she sent me the whole trilogy. I looked at them and thought "These don't look like s [...]

      "Shadowed in Silk" is a historical romance novel set in 1918 in India. This novel takes the reader through an interesting bit of Indian history. The historical and setting details helped to bring the story alive in my imagination. The romance involved two people trying to do the right things but in a difficult situation.The characters were interesting, but they weren't very complex. You could describe them in two words at the beginning, and they played that same role to the very end. This struck [...]

    18. Michelle on said:

      This is an exceptional story for a number of reasons. For one, it was bravely told. I love an author who is honest in their story-telling. The faith journey was one of my favorite aspects of this story. It wasn't forced, contrived, or in any way sappy. The author gets bonus points for that alone. Plus, this story was very well written and full of rich historical and cultural detail. But the details don't bog the story down like I've seen in a number of books lately. For me, the details enhanced [...]

      I admit to knowing little about the British Raj or even about India itself, so this novel gave a potted view of the situation and the country. I thoroughly enjoyed taking the journey with Abby and her small son Cam back to India, where she spent her earlier years. The daughter of a general, Abby is keen to get out to India after World War 1 and re-connect with her husband Nick. But it seems Nick is not at all the man she remembered from their brief time of marriage together.I related to Abby and [...]

      Shadowed in Silk is a richly evocative tale set in the closing days of British rule in India. We see the elegant lifestyles of the British officers and their wives (flirting is an unofficial sport, but don’t get caught), and the second-class treatment of the Indian nationals.There are so many layers to this novel: romance, relationships, culture, faith, social justice, intrigue and danger. And it’s set at a point in history when Ghandi’s teaching of peaceful revolution was gaining influenc [...]

      I really enjoyed this story. I loved to read Kim by Rudyard Kipling and this was reminiscent of that story only later in time. The story takes place in India right after WW1. Abby arrives in India on one of the troop ships with her 4 year old son to live with her husband. They were married at the beginning of the war and he was immediately posted to India. The story is about a young girl learning that the man she is married to isn't really the man she thought he was. She also finds that the Indi [...]

    22. Jennifer Taylor on said:

      Shadowed in Silk is a touching story that brings forth the realities of abuse, racial and social injustice, while weaving a tale of forbidden love that shows God's forgiving grace and healing power. It has a unique setting in the country of India where culture and class systems are very different. I enjoyed learning about these differences in a time shortly after the turn of the century as the intriguing story unfolded. The author handles the situation of a Christian man falling in love with a m [...]

      After the Great War, Abby travels to India with her three-year-old son, eager to introduce the boy to his father and resume her brief marriage. She finds a man much different than the one she thought she married: an indebted gambler, drinker, already married to a young Indian woman. Nick admits he chose Abby for her influence as a general's daughter and her inheritance. The turmoil within her household is echoed in the tension throughout the country as the people battle the British occupiers for [...]

      This is a story you never want to end least when everyone is fine! What an excellent movie it would make!Major Geoff Richards and Abby Fraser are thrown together early in this bookwhen Abby's husband Nick fails to meet her and his Son, when they arrive in India. Cam has never met his father, in his short 4 years, and is now delighting in the companionship of Maj Richards. When they finally arrive at their new home, Abby finds out that Nick has been on Holiday and couldn't take the time to come f [...]

      I am not typically a fan of christian romantic fiction, as it frequently feels that the biblical lessons are being hammered into the reader at the cost of plot development. Christina Lindsey's book was a fun read. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, especially the well-researched description of early 1900s life in India. During British rule, on the eve of Ghandi and the people's revolt, etc. The story was very entertaining for this reason. The plot was a bit uneven--dragging at times, predictable in [...]

      First reviewed here: overweight-bookshelf.Shadowed in Silk is an epic tale of love lost and and love found set in exotic India during the political turmoil of the independence revolutions. Christine's writing captured the essence of India's vibrant culture and oppressive history. Her characters manoeuvre across racial and religious barriers without losing the reader along the way; instead the reader is educated about a world that for too long has been ignored in historical fiction. Christine's c [...]

    27. Amber Stokes on said:

      As the cover design suggests, this is a bold and beautifully-detailed historical novel set in a time of turmoil during the British Raj in India. Shadowed in Silk is fast-paced with plenty of intense action to hold the reader's interest. Danger and uncertainties abound within these pages!Due to the setting, as well as the situation Abby finds herself in from the beginning, this is not a light read. It's sad and difficult to read about Abby's broken marriage and her failed attempts to fix it. This [...]

      I thoroughly enjoyed Shadowed in Silk about an American woman returning to post-war India (her childhood home) to reunite with the husband she’d known only a short time before he was deployed. Christine Lindsay does a wonderful job of immersing the reader in the sights, sounds and language of India in the time of British colonial rule. It took me awhile to get used to some of the unfamiliar East Indian vocabulary, but it added an authenticity that I wouldn’t have traded for a simpler read. C [...]

      An action-packed novel of the British Raj in the 1920'sChristine Lindsay's SHADOWED IN SILK is a beautifully written book full of superb period detail to give the reader a you-are-there feeling; charcters you truly care about, including a Mother Theresa figure; and gripping events, many of them right from the pages of history.After World War I Abby returns with her small son to the India she grew up in hoping to rebuild her life with her husband, but little of the man she married is apparent in [...]

    30. Sandra on said:

      Christine created well-rounded characters caught up in a turbulent time of change---the time of Ghandi and India's fight for independence. One feels Abby's fear for her son and Geoff's divided sentiments between the British military and the Indian people he loves. I must admit that, for me, the first nearly forty pages read a bit slow as Christine introduced the setting and characters. But soon thereafter, I found myself immersed in the story---the intrigue and romance. From there, it charged ah [...]
